Confession #1 –
It has been 84 days since I’ve last eaten Chipotle. 84! With my flare in full effect, I was staying away from any foods that would trigger inflammation so Mexican food was a big no go. But since I’ve been feeling much better, I figured it was time to make up for lost time. I ordered my salad sans beans and corn (two of the worst culprits for digestion during a flare) and dove into this big bowl of heaven for lunch yesterday. I also ordered this during a moment of extreme hunger and started eating the side of guacamole with a spoon in the car on the way back to the office. You can judge, I certainly am. #pregnancyhunger
Confession #2 –
I’ve been feeling pretty unmotivated to workout these days. Despite being extremely tired, huge, and uncomfortable every moment of the day, ever since the doctor told me I had to slow things down on the workout front, I keep thinking, “what’s the point?” I’ve always had a “go big or go home” mentality when it comes to working out so now that I’m waking myself up at 5am to walk, I feel quite unenthusiastic about it. All I really want to do is sleep, eat, and sleep some more. #pregnancyproblems
Confession #3 –
Speaking of sleep, I’m pretty sure I dosed off for a few minutes at my desk the other day at work. Thank goodness no one saw me, but staying awake the entire workday is a huge feat for me right now. I’m not kidding; I go into work every day with a plan on how I will make it nine hours without falling asleep at my desk. My solution for the past week has been drinking a small cup of coffee around 2pm. I’m really not supposed to be drinking coffee (more for my UC stuff, not necessarily because of pregnancy as I know a small cup a day is perfectly fine) but it has become a necessity.
Confession #4 –
I, like many of the other billion females, watched the 50 Shades of Grey trailer yesterday and became filled with anticipation for it to come out. I then became filled with annoyance when I found out it doesn’t come out until next Valentine’s Day. Talk about a major marketing ploy!

Confession #6 –
I really want to get a dog. I mean bad! We have a new thing at work where we send each other sad or heartwarming videos from dog rescue websites and it’s killing me. My heart actually hurts after seeing some of these and I have come dangerously close to pulling the trigger one too many times. Now, only to convince John to jump on board….
Confession #7 –
I’ve been all about sandwiches lately but my jam right now is BLT’s. I made one the other night that blew my mind! How do you make a BTL even more delicious than it already is? You add egg of course! Oh and avocado. Avocado, egg, and bacon….yep there is nothing better, trust me!
Have a lovely weekend!
